went through mine last summer also.
I was unable to bend the U shape without kinking the hose, and did not want to pay BMW $30 for a part that would eventually fail.
I bought some hard ( steel) brake line, at auto parts store, 5/16" I think.
bent a U shape with a brake line bender, flared the ends, and used that.
Now I have a few short sections of the expensive submersible hose, all straight.
also replaced the fuel pump with a cheaper alternative.. Ill try and find the thread.
napa or oreillys ( gates distributors) can order the hose.
I am not suggesting this site, but it gives you the part number.
